Who We Were

“Who we were had washed away with the summer. Who we are was yet to be seen.”
Summer school at Alcott High was only supposed to gain Sadie Peters extra credit, nothing more. Her goal wasn't to make friends, or gain the attention of the most popular football player, yet she managed both. Her life was cruising along on course ... until that summer.
Could a simple stint in a different school change her identity completely and introduce her to love for the first time? How would that affect her relationship with Lily, her best friend?
Hopefully their friendship was strong enough to make it through the tumultuous summer. Sadie learns that great things come with change, but sometimes memories of the past are hardest to part with.
~ My Review ~
This thought-provoking book is a unique story about surviving high school relationships, illness, hope, redemption, forgiveness and love.
I can’t say enough about how much this book impacted me. It was so good that I am still thinking about the story line and how well the author presented touchy subjects that a large majority of us experienced and cried over during high school and/or college.
As you read this book you will see a part of you in it and you will really admire how Sadie deals with football twin brothers, Nash and Nolan Ryland, as well as the not so nice quarterback, Oliver. I love how Sadie strives to overcome her existing stereotype and recreate herself, in spite of the obstacles that keep jumping in her way.
I give it 5 STARS.
I was given this ARC by the author for an honest opinion
